When you know somebody that works there. I needed some strings ASAP for some gigs coming up this week starting tonight. Texted him and asked what kind of deals, if any, could he get me. A few minutes later he says come on down, I can help you out. I roll in, grab some D'Addario XL-5's and we go ring em up. Got em out the door for $14.23. I looked on the Just Strings page and they're selling for $21.57 there. I figured going in he'd be able to save me a buck or two, but this was quite the pleasant surprise. Just thought I'd share.
